This exhibition brings together recently acquired works to the Barrick Museum and Las Vegas Art Museum collections. Many of the artists included in Recent Acquisitions have ties to the greater Las Vegas valley, helping to form the foundation of a heritage collection of works created in and inspired by the Southern Nevada region. As a cross section of the diverse practices pursued by contemporary artists this exhibition reaffirms the Barrick’s commitment to collecting art of the present. The vast majority of the works will be on display for the first time since entering the Museum’s collections.
